Got the opportunity to buy a made in Japan E series tele. I believe it is a CTL30? But only gathered that from searching online. Serial number E635484. The price is right at about $400. A couple of things bother me, one is there is no "made in Japan" anywhere on the guitar but have see 6 or 7 online and appear to be the same. I believe it is a 70s reissue available in black or cream and maybe explain the logo. It may have originally been a top loader, the bridge has been changed and now a string through which is fine by me. What is the opinion of this model / era guitar? I know the E series strats are desirable. They weren't plywood or anything horrible?
